Rang-tan: The Dirty Palm Oil Story | Greenpeace Australia



Sign the petition now to end dirty palm oil!

Rang-tan’s forest home is being destroyed to clear the way for palm oil – an ingredient used to make products for brands like Unilever, Mondelez and Nestlé.

If we don’t act, more precious habitats will be ruined; Indigenous Peoples could lose their homes, and Rang-tan and her species could be lost forever.

Lyrics:

There’s a Rang-tan in my bedroom
and I don’t know what to do.
She plays with all my teddies
and keeps borrowing my shoe.

She destroys all of my house plants
and she keeps on shouting ‘oo’.
She throws away my chocolate
and she howls at my shampoo.

There’s a Rang-tan in my bedroom
and I don’t want her to stay,
So I told the naughty Rang-tan
that she had to go away.

Oh, Rang-tan in my bedroom,
just before you go,
Why were you in my bedroom?
I really want to know.

There’s a human in my forest
and I don’t know what to do.
He destroyed all of our trees
for your food and your shampoo.

There’s a human in my forest
and I don’t know what to do.
He took away my mother
and I’m scared he’ll take me, too.

There are humans in my forest
and I don’t know what to do.
They’re burning it for palm oil
so I thought I’d stay with you.

Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom
now I do know what to do.
I’ll fight to save your home
and I’ll stop you feeling blue.

I’ll share your story far and wide
so others can fight too.
Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom
I swear it on the stars:
the future’s not yet written
but I’ll make sure it’s ours.
